God Damn that's a pretty motor! You don't see that much nowadays
I don't see why you'd have to move the firewall back that far at all, set the motor a bit forward, move the radiator farther into the mouth of the car etc...

Not saying it wouldn't be alot of work..... or a waste of money... but It would be freaking awesome!
